There was talk of a Scotch tasting....

hey Charles,
if you're still unpacking and settling down in your new pad, I'm willing to host it at my loft.  

I don't know where everyone will be driving from, but I'm pretty centrally located.  It will also be an end of a long and frantic week for me, so not leaving the house would be great ideal for my tired ass.  8)  

I have 6 bottles of scotch we could sample -- that would be an explosion hazard in my car!  8O

True that. People like me with only one bottle to transport should do the traveling!

I am actually unpacked at the new place, but central is good. There are two of us so far coming from up here, and Cole will be coming from down south, so your place would work well if you're willing to have us.

Post your address and I'll put it in my first post so it will be more visible.

Joel: you want to ride down together? As much as I'd like to take the bus, I think they frown on open containers... maybe I could brown-bag it... oh yeah, classy!

Oh yeah, everyone that is coming and bringing a bottle, post it here so nobody unnecessarily brings a second bottle of something.

I already posted mine but I'll say it again for the sake of redundancy:

Alan's Pad:
Saint Lukes Lofts
1860 Washington Street, #604
Denver, CO  80203
(southeast corner of 19th and Washington)

Here are my selection:
The Glenlevet 12 year French Oak
The Glenlevet 12 year American Oak
The Balvenie Founder's Reserve 10 year
The Glendronach 15 year Sherry Cask matured
Glenmorangie Single Highland 10 year
Glenmorangie Traditional 100 proof 10 year
William Grant 100 proof

I'll be making a pita/hummous plate -- something simple to cleanse the palatte and not over powering the scotch.

if that's not enough, there's a ghetto liquor store just a block away if we are craving for a 40.

what time is good for everyone?

I'm in.  I have a large collection and will bring a few things that seem appropriate.  Maybe a Caol Isla 18, Bowmore 17,  maybe a more  basic smokey peaty scotch like the Jon Mark and Robbo.

Charles we can carpool, sure.  What is the parking situation?  IIRC the area around Children's Hospital is a hotbed of car theft and break-ins.  That's not too far from the Adams Mark where I often park downtown if I have one of the flashy cars though.

There is usually space in front of Alan's building which seems like a fine place to park. We all parked there for the last shindig with no problems. I do think there is a garage close by... Alan?

my street is very safe to park, even overnight as Washington St is the main road where the police take to their station a few blocks directly south -- there's at least three bimmers parked outside overnight by my neighbors.
There's also a guest parking lot at the south end of my building (just outside the garage door), but there's only 4 spots there.

Children's Hospital is about 4 blocks northeast away and a little more ghetto.  It's a surprize how a couple blocks could make a big difference.

yeah, but there you could park next to Jon.   :D

I really wish i could be there guys.  Since I can't make it, I'll go for a small bottle on the plane ride I'll be on.  

Enjoy.

Oh, and for next time, my current home selection is:

25 year sherry oak Macallan
Dahlmore Cigar Malt
The Balvenie 18 year
Royal Lochnagar 12yrs
Glenrothes 1984 / 18yrs (almost gone though)
and
Johnny Walker Gold (sorry but the Blue is gone)

We had 13 bottles of scotch at one point - all were very good. There was certainly a wide selection of flavors.

Thanks for the hosting and snacks, Alan!

Next time I have a night available I'd be glad to do tequila at my house. I have 6 bottles to sample (they don't travel very well). :twisted:
